Thanks! I did receive a base gasket but no head gasket and there wasn't one on there before the rebuild. I was tempted to seal with RTV gasket maker but I figured if it's supposed to run without a head gasket that could be bad news. My bike has a battery that is long dead, and it would be nice to have the headlight work at an idle for street riding, but I have no idea what type of battery is on there, it kinda looks homemade (cells taped together). The battery was strapped onto a piece of aluminum that was screwed into the back of the airbox, which I replaced by simply using zip-ties through the tiny screw holes. I think I might just try a generic light 12v battery like the $30 one for my xt225 and see if it does the trick.
